Beep Beep Rev Rev gives Olmstead first Canterbury Park Quarter Horse Derby win
Relentlessly Fast won Canterbury Park’s richest quarter horse race Wednesday, prevailing in the $98,600 Northlands Futurity by a neck over favorite Relentless Bay. The 2-year-old gelding is trained by 22-year-old Tyler Stein for owner and breeder Tom Maher. Relentlessly Fast paid $11.00 to win. He also won the $69,500 MQHRA Stallion Auction Futurity on June 28 and now has won three of six career starts and $80,311 in purse earnings.
“At Remington he kept wanting to take a step back right when they kicked the gate,” Stein said. “And, you know, just a little more experience on him, got running on his mind a little better. He had the talent. It was just figuring out how to run.”
Trainer Jason Olmstead, who has won the Northlands four times, saddled six of the 10 starters. His runners finished second, third, fourth, sixth, seventh and tenth.
“We’ve got Tom [Maher] one of the all-time leading owners. Jason [Olmstead], he’s a world champion trainer. I don’t get to beat him much. So when I do it feels good,” Stein said.
Beep Beep Rev Rev broke from the starting gate alertly and was never headed, winning the $60,000 Canterbury Park Derby by a neck over Relentless Okie. Her victory was the first Derby win for Hall of Fame trainer Olmstead. The 3-year-old filly was bred in Minnesota by her owner Summer Run Inc. Edwin Escobeo was aboard. Beep Beep Rev Rev paid $4.60 to win as the favorite.
“She’s just loyal,” Escobedo said. “Every time she goes on to the track, she’s always going to give you her best. Every time, no matter what.”
Beep Beep Rev Rev has won eight of 13 lifetime starts and $148,487 in purses.
The $15,000 Northlands Juvenile, for horses entered in the Northlands trials that did not qualify for the final, was won by Silver Dakota Moon and jockey Stormy Smith. The 2-year-old Oklahoma bred filly is trained by Mallory Norton and is owned by Randal Schwartz. She won by 3/4 of a length and paid $5.40 as the second choice in the wagering.
“That’s the effort I needed in the trials,” Norton said. “She got a feeling for the surface. I knew she was capable because of her Remington races.”
The nine-race card handled $934,558.
